Performance plus playfulness plus plenty of float. The Harpoon takes its cues from surfboard design and wins a 2022 Platinum Pick Award.
Crossbows, nunchaku, machetes—all weapons of the elite. But if you can wield a harpoon, my friend, you are a grandmaster. We suspect this was part of the thought process Never Summer had when designing the Women’s Harpoon snowboard:
Spear? …. Hmm, maybe.
Javelin? …. We’re getting closer, people.
What about harpoon? … Looks like we found the new CEO.
Elegant in aesthetics, yet lethal in performance, one can see simply by the design profile that this board will elevate any rider’s skills to the next level. Taking a cue from custom surfboards, the Harpoon is built with a particular volume geared specifically toward women. What that means is that this board is an all-mountain machine that is custom-tailored to your riding. Whether you’re just cruising the resort with your squad or staring down an untouched bowl of powder, the directional shape, in combination with game-changing Fusion Rocker Camber, is going to give you the strength to hold a tight edge ripping from run to run and at the same time, the playfulness to keep you floating in knee-deep powder without any issues. And because it’s a Never Summer (aka Never Gonna Buy a Different Brand) expect the highest quality and without question, the most durable board you have ever ridden.
